About

Punch, kick, fly and flap your way to victory!

Players will control their furry, scaly, and feathered combatants in an uproarious spin on competitive matching games. 

Assemble your attack combos from the cards in your hand, then choose an opponent. Fling down your attack with enthusiasm and determination, calling out your moves with energy and style! "I attack you with the Spinning Monkey Punch!" Your opponent looks unimpressed until you throw down your finishing move card, "Of Doooooooom!!!" His face goes white and sweat beads on his brow as he reaches into his cards and… 

Will your attack be successful and earn you powerful chi? Will your opponent block your attack, taking your chi and causing you to lose standing in the eyes of the Samurai Zookeeper? Perhaps you need more training in the Zookeeper's dojo! Never fear, though, play continues until the deck is exhausted, so there's plenty of time to hone your skills and change your destiny in this game of skill, luck, and bravado for 3-6 players.

Exceding our funding target will allow us to upgrade components and make this family favorite truly an ultimate experience.

Game Salute Guaranteed is our promise that Zoo Fu will be produced with quality components and that you will enjoy the time you spend with the game. If you're not satisfied with Zoo Fu, simply return it to our headquarters within 30 days of receiving it, and we'll refund your pledge. That's our no-questions-asked money-back guarantee.

International Backers

Shipping is expensive. We've calculated the cost to ship this game to backers around the world and we're subsidizing that to help keep your costs down. The cost to ship this game to backers in the USA is $7.04, so, Game Salute is covering $7.04 of the shipping cost for ALL backers around the world. That means that the pledge level for USA backers includes shipping and for international backers, we're passing along the same savings on shipping. Simply check the chart below, find your destination group, then follow the line to see you total pledge amount in blue.

To keep the shipping costs as low as possible, we ship packages via a variety of shipping services depending on your specific location. We use USPS, FedEx, UPS, and DHL. You will be responsible for any import fees, brokerage or delivery surcharges, or applicable taxes that may be levied after we have shipped your package.

Risks and challenges

As we enter the crowdfunding phase, Zoo Fu: Path of the Samurai Zookeeper is not yet "Print Ready". Game art will need to be completed, and certain stretch goals will require additional art if we fund at those levels, so we have set an extended delivery date to be on the safe side. Every game project is subject to potential production delays, but we believe we've allowed enough wiggle-room for Zoo Fu.

The final challenge is getting the game and rewards out to the backers. Game Salute is well versed in Kickstarter reward fulfillment and we are prepared to meet this challenge for Zoo Fu.
